Cruz’s racing career started at age 5, racing 50cc dirt bikes at the Dirt Series, Transworld Series and at the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix. After three years of racing dirt bikes, Cruz obtained many podiums and championships. In 2016 the decision to transition to SXS’s was made. He started racing 170’s and 250’s at the Worcs, Dirt Series and GBC Series where he also gained multiple podiums as well as finishing 3rd in the 170 class Worcs Championship. Cruz then moved up and competed in the 570 class for two years at the Worcs and Texplex series, bringing home more podiums and championships. At age 13, Cruz moved up into the 1000cc class, racing in his Carr One Fabrications/West Coast Motorsports built RS1. Currently, Cruz competes short course tracks in the Pro N/A class at the Corr series, King of the Hammers, GAS, and MidAmerica (MAO) series. He competes long range desert courses in his Carr One Fabrications/West Coast Motorsports built Polaris Pro R at the Best in the Desert, King of the Hammers, Mint 400, and the California 300 series. Cruz has future plans to compete in the Baja 400 and Baja 500 when he turns 16, August of 2024. Cruz strives to be a well-respected racer and fierce competitor wherever he goes. He is consistently training to sharpen his driving skills as well as be in shape mentally in physically. Cruz hopes to be a Rally Cross or F1racer one day.

A healthy lifestyle is beneficial for racing, so off the track I keep busy mountain bike riding, golfing, riding pit bikes and working out. I also spend a lot of time at our teams new shop learning how to use all the machines, engineering and fabricating custom parts and prepping our race cars.
